A full list of stores staying open on Christmas in 2023

We've made a list of retailers, grocery and convenience store hours, and we're checking it twice.

And just like that, it's Christmas.

If Santa hasn't already been by to deliver the presents, then chances are pretty good that he's still on his way.

Certainly, there are a lot of gifts to put under Christmas trees and with a list as long as Santa's, it's entirely possible that things occasionally get lost in the shuffle.

If, in the eleventh hour you just realized that jolly ol' St. Nick forgot to bring AA batteries for the latest tech gadget the kids received or you didn't pick up cranberry sauce for the big meal, then you may be wondering what stores are open on Christmas Day 2023.

We hate to break it to you, but more retailers than ever are closing their doors on Dec. 25 in observance of the Christmas holiday including Target, Walmart, Costco, Trader Joe's and other popular outlets.

But don't fret. If you're in a pickle this year, we're here to help with this comprehensive list of stores that'll be open on Christmas Day in 2023, as well as which ones will be closed, to save you the time and trouble of looking them all up on your own.

From pharmacies to grocery and convenience stores, we've got details on store hours and where to find what you need which, if we do say so ourselves, is a bit of a Christmas blessing, depending on your situation.

While there aren't many of them, you might just find what you're looking for to hold you over until Tuesday, Dec. 26 when most stores, banks and post offices return to normal business hours.

One thing's for sure, no matter how you spend the holidays, we're here to help make them a bit easier, and that's a gift you won't need to return.
